The Busi­ness of Food Travel Pod­cast

Eat Well, Travel Bet­ter:

Tourism Tattler - - EDITORIAL -

The pod­casts aim to help you be­come a bet­ter in­dus­try pro­fes­sional by gain­ing in­spi­ra­tion from some of the world's most suc­cess­ful peo­ple in the food and bev­er­age tourism in­dus­try.

With each episode, you'll meet these lead­ers and dis­cover their se­crets of suc­cess, as each re­veals the ob­sta­cles and chal­lenges they have faced, along with their so­lu­tions and tri­umphs, and you'll take away ideas and in­spi­ra­tion to solve many of the same busi­ness is­sues that you may be fac­ing as well.

If you work in the food, bev­er­age, travel, or hos­pi­tal­ity in­dus­try, and have a re­mark­able story to share, then WFTA want to hear from you.

Per­haps you have over­come a se­ri­ous work or per­sonal chal­lenge or you achieved some­thing tremen­dous? Email de­tails about your­self, your pro­fes­sional back­ground and your life chal­lenge or ma­jor ac­com­plish­ment, and a state­ment as to why you think your

story would in­spire pro­fes­sion­als in food and bev­er­age tourism to help@world­food­

The only re­quire­ments are that you have a fast enough broad­band con­nec­tion, a qual­ity mi­cro­phone, and a quiet place for the in­ter­view. The show is a pod­cast, so video is not re­quired. You can count on spend­ing 15-30 min­utes be­fore the in­ter­view to pre­pare your re­marks. The in­ter­view it­self will last less than 60 min­utes. Su­per­flu­ous in­for­ma­tion, er­ro­neous com­ments and gen­eral chit-chat will be edited out be­fore pub­lish­ing, to end up with an episode of ap­prox­i­mately 40-45 min­utes.

Episode 1: Ari Weinzweig - Sweat the De­tails

Ari Weinzweig is Co-Founder of the Zinger­man's fam­ily of com­pa­nies, which in­clude a del­i­catessen, bak­ery, cater­ing op­er­a­tion, fam­ily restau­rant, Korean restau­rant, cream­ery, cof­fee store, candy store and a pro­fes­sional hos­pi­tal­ity train­ing arm. Ari had no idea the com­pany would grow so large when the orig­i­nal deli opened back in 1982. Now, 35 years later, the Zinger­man's com­pa­nies are a true visi­tor des­ti­na­tion in Cen­tral Michi­gan (USA). Ari talks about how ev­ery­thing got started, his vi­sion, and why sweat­ing the de­tails is im­por­tant. Check out Ari's books men­tioned in the pod­cast.
